QPR boss Redknapp insists Spurs sacking had nothing to do with football

QPR boss Harry Redknapp says his sacking at Tottenham had nothing to do with football.

Redknapp takes on his former club today in a ding-dong lunchtime derby at Loftus Road.

He said: "It had nothing to do with my record - yes, it was political.

"I've got my own feelings about what happened to me but it's difficult for me to say."

Redknapp had a year left on his contract and no one - not even 'Arry - expected the off-season to start with chairman Daniel Levy giving him the bullet.

The Rangers chief said: "I went to see him about signing a new contract and that was it - it ended with me leaving."

Redknapp insists he holds no grudges against Levy or anybody at Spurs.

He added: "What am I supposed to say? I hope West Ham don't do any good, I hope Southampton are c**p, I hope Bournemouth keep losing.

"I swear on my wife's life I do not worry about those things. They do not affect me any more. I'm not interested."
